Native and Rural Student Center (Juneau)

"Yak'ei haat yigoodee"

(It is good that you have come)

The mission of the Native & Rural Student Center (NRSC) is to create a student-centered inclusive environment that honors diversity, celebrates cultural traditions and knowledge, and enhances the learning experiences of the University of Alaska Southeast students. 

Since 1996, the NRSC has provided a warm, inviting atmosphere filled with opportunities to gather with peers, receive academic support, and develop leadership skills. The NRSC helps to explain academic requirements and UAS resource information and assists students in adjusting to college requirements, and campus life. The Center provides a space for gatherings with an Alaska Native cultural focus. NRSC also provides information about those scholarships and grants that are most relevant for Alaska Natives. The NRSC serves as a drop-in center for connecting and getting involved in campus activities.

Wooch.een: UAS sponsors an Alaska Native cultures club, Wooch.een, which means Working Together to raise our hopes and our dreams. Wooch.een is open to all students and helps to bridge the gap between academic and cultural education.
